    Default Draining breasts well...

    Anyone have any ideas on how to encourage my lo to stay on my breasts to drain them well? He`s 8 mo, and a very distractable breastfeeder, and due to my undersupply, he also gets formula, but I`d like to keep what supply I do have and know that draining my breasts well will help with that, but lately he`s been such a snacker. Any mom`s dealing with this?

    I am no expert but I was reading a similar post that stated that it was normal for babies to get distracted. Soulution:find a quite place to nurse, maybe even a dark room. There is also something called nursing neckalace that you can wear for baby to play with...
